  1. I have not been able to find online if one can do both of these programs.
  2. New School Nurse

    In general yes but there are some districts/organizations that pay school nurses more and your experience will also likely mean you will be paid higher than others.
  3. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    Oh okay, thanks! When I said PSLF is more reliable likely I meant Nursing Corps is likely more reliable than PSLF.
  4. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    I've heard that about government loan forgiveness, PSLF is likely more reliable. Yes at this point it is too late to backtrack. For now I am working as a nurse and if I find it financially feasible to become an NP then I will. Don't some hospit...
  5. Direct Entry NP Programs?

    There are many in Massachusetts. Some of them involve you working as a nurse for a year but not all. It is good experience anyways to work as a nurse before becoming an NP.
  6. Direct Entry MSN?

    I am not aware of direct-entry MSN programs in Canada but maybe they do exist. There are many in Massachusetts, and also in Florida and California and New York.
  7. District School Nurse

    Hi, It makes a big difference how big the district is, and what the culture is like. I worked for a year at a district with only 2 schools. It could still be incredibly busy, in fact usually I was! Which was good. The culture wasn't a good fit f...
  8. New School Nurse

    Hi, I am a new nurse that started out in a rehab facility and then as a school nurse. Your med/surge and hospital experience will help you a lot as a school nurse, because you will have more knowledge of medical conditions and emergency care. In...
  9. I have heard this from people in my life and also online when I say I want to continue on from nursing to NP. I don't understand this logic. Nurses don't make enough for what they do either! Isn't it about people doing what interests them? Most peopl...
  10. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    I am not really concerned, I plan to work either 10 years in a non-profit/government site, or nursing corps loan forgiveness.
  11. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    I appreciate that perspective but if I want to be an NP I don't mind. I will also work hard to get scholarships and grants to do my best to not go over 200k in completing my program. PCP MD/DOs who often make the same as NPs often have the same amou...
  12. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    Hi, Thanks for your comment. Yes, I can imagine that there are many nurses who relate to this thread for one reason or another, so an update is helpful. I found Nurse Liz months ago and liked her. I should watch more of her videos. ...

    Thank you so much!
  14. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    Thank you that means a lot! xoxoxo
  15. Have debt but don't know if I want to be an NP?

    An update: I have decided to go ahead with being a nurse practitioner, after realizing how much I enjoy this field and that some of the bullying I've experienced are just part of life that can happen anywhere. ❤️
